Thanks for the advice. The captains original plan from key west
was to cross over to bahamas
stop in chub cay to re fuel
and go out through providence channel to 66 and head
south but upon reaching chub cay decided with winds from east to head
as far south as possible and look for weather
window for easting. I dont know if this was a prudent choice or not but cant do anything about it now. I believe his logic was to keep moving but who can tell. I also think he was trying to meet a time constraint of his or one of his crew members which is never a good idea but this what im stuck with. Now im debating wether to spend some time in the bahamas before hiring someone to ultimately help us make the crossing to dr or hire captain
to finish the job and finish the trip in bahamas. Hesitant to make crossing with our 5 and 8 year old. Have several qualified captains to vet who say they are willing to move the boat for us.
